the united states' ally, but it wasn't its enemy either. did those words have anything to do with this? >> reporter: i think there is a certain amount of alarm among the leadership of the muslim brotherhood. those i've spoken with did seem to get the message, that the united states was unhappy with the response or the reaction of mohammed morsi, the egyptian president, to the breaching of the american embassy. they felt that maybe it's time to start sending out a more reassuring messages to the united states. but what's significant is that on the one hand the message is come i coming out in english to a nonarabic audience, seemed to be pointing in the direction of reconciliation. i was at a demonstration this morning at a mosque not in the tahrir square area where it was organized by the muslim brotherhood. and the chants were not reassuring. one of the chants was "obama there are a million osamas." referring, of course, to osama bin laden, be chanting that united states is the enemy of god. it appears that the muslim brotherhood is trying to please two audiences at the same time.

are not far from the truth. >> the question is whether the united states underestimated the threat from hostile groups here. one libyan security official told me that he met with american officials in benghazi three days before the attack took place. he says he warned them not for the first time that security in benghazi was deteriorating. he said "we told the americans the situation was frightening. it scares us." the ambassador too seems to have been aware of the general threat from islamist militants but no one anticipated the terrible violence that would take his life and the life of three other americans on tuesday night. >>> as protests sweep across the world, a former marine says it's not just in retaliation for a movie mocking the prophet muhammud.

? some could say i think this does. many other people especially in the united states are saying no, thest a matter of free expression. the president of one of those groups was on cnn this morning. >> the only kind of hate speech that is illegal in the united states is when it incites imminent lawlessness and i think google is correct that the video in question did not meet that standard. >> google, which owns youtube, constantly having to make subjective decisions about what videos are okay. >> interesting. but this isn't over because the white house has been asked to weigh in on this as well. >> the extent was asking youtube to take another look at it and then they said no, we're not going to do it. what you do have all the time, this is what's so fascinating about the way technology is changing the world. there are so many difficult decisions youtube has to face. for example, they say they don't all allow gory vooid, violent video, then you get these videos out of syria that show gore and violence. what we found is a youtube official who gave a talk a few years ago who said there

isolated cases. this is spread throughout the united states from places like los angeles to providence, rhode island. it's a culture of corruption it seems that even the executive leadership, they knew about this sh didn't report it and kept the people on the boy scouts from tell the parents about it. >> so, that's revealed in the documentation? how was that discovered or alleged that officials knew about it then failed to report it? >> some of these documents the "l.a. times" got their hands on, we asked the boy scouts of america how they got them. they didn't want to talk about that. these are people blacklisted from volunteering with the boy scouts and in the correspondence back and forth between the leadership and people that were allegedly abusing these children, it showed they knew about these cases, covered them up and went so far as to hide the cases from the parents and law enforcement. they didn't report these cases. 80% were not reported to law enforcement. >> so, a cover up also leads one to think that potentially, those who are accused of participating in this kind of beha

, side stories. the united states has not issued the full complement of visas to the delegation accompanying the iranian leader. about 20 or so according to the iranians out of about 160 people. the u.s. has an agreement with the united nations as the host country for the world organization to allow people to come here no matter the level of dispute. however, the u.s. also does reserve the right at times, especially in tough diplomatic relations, strained relations, and no relations with iran, to not issue visas if it so sees fit. but ahmadinejad has his visa. along with that baggage you mentioned. >> we were showing pictures of the warwick hotel, a posh hotel in new york city. that's where ahmadinejad and his entourage are going to stay. there will be protests outside the hotel later today, right? >> i think so. the warwick has been his latest place of residence. any group that opposes ahmadinejad has always denounced a new york hotel for allowing him to stay there. this has gone on. there was someone who was injured in a bombing who has sued ahmadinejad and iran and suing, i t

israel and we demonize the united states or we do all this stuff, we want you to trust us. in spite of the fact that we won't cooperate with the international regime set up to avoid an arms race in the middle east and set up to avoid nuclear proliferation, we want you to trust us. so they don't have a tenable position. >> do you trust them? do you trust ahmadinejad? >> not on this, i don't. >> his argument is, look, why should america be allowed nuclear weapons, why should israel who never admitted they have them, why should they be permitted to have them, why should many countries be aloud nuclear weapons and not iran? >> then why isn't going for some bigger nonproliferation initiative instead of acting like what he really wants is a nuclear bomb because that will help to get everybody to get rid of their nuclear weapons. no serious person believes that. >> so then here's my question, piers. is what should the united states do? did the two of you get into that? >> we did get into that. and he's pretty diplomatic. he wouldn't directly answer because, of course, his wife hillary is s

lincoln or douglas or the greatest debaters in the history of the united states. so that if they don't do so well, the expectations game is a little lower. reminds me when al gore was debating george w. bush in 2000, al gore, the vice president of the united states, was seen as a great debate, george w. bush not so much. but then al gore, you know, had some fumbles and in terms of the sighing he did and a lot of people were paying attention to that. and bush all of a sudden looked a whole lot better. these debates can be significant for relatively trivial things like that, if, for example, and you remember when the first president bush, george h.w. bush, you know, at one of the presidential debates started looking at his watch and it looked like he was ready to move on. let's get out of here, already. that hurt him, i think, in his re-election bid against bill clinton back in 1992. it is part of the game. it is what goes on. but i think these debates are going to be really, really important for that, 6%, 7%, 8% who are legitimately undecided or switchable, haven't completely made
